An excellent post, Emma. I love the uniqueness of this review, how you chose to describe it by listing the words that came to you. Very effective tool.

Thanks, Michael. It's definitely been an all poetry-all the time last few months for me. Makes it easy to write about!

The poet definitely has a unique style, very sensitive and delicate, I might say exotic at the same time. I came across his autobiography, the title sounds very catchy (Butterfly Boy: Memories of a Chicano Mariposa), so I'm going to give it a try.

That's the next book of his that I want to read. I'm interested in seeing how that exotic sensitivity you mention transposes to prose. You'll have to let me know what you think. I'm also on Goodreads and Facebook, btw. Thanks for your comments!

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
